Ms Forsey noted the significance of royal christenings, saying they “are a really big deal,” with religion playing a central role for the monarchy.
Mr Myers, royal editor at the Daily Mirror, agreed, adding: “The King is the head of the Church of England, the Anglican Church, and certainly he would find a christening to be a very sacred event, a reason to celebrate togetherness and new beginnings. I think it’s a great shame that he wasn’t there.”
The commentator went on to recall Archie’s christening in the summer of 2019, and said: “We had that amazing picture of [Archie] with the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.
“And we don’t have that [for Lilibet’s christening]; there are no family photos of that royal connection. And they want their children to have the royal connection.”
